Section 3. Hazard Identification
Emergency Overview
WARNING !
FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR. MAY CAUSE TARGET ORGAN DAMAGE, BASED ON ANIMAL DATA.
Flammable liquid. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Avoid contact with skin
and clothing. May cause target organ damage, based on animal data. Use only with adequate ventilation. Keep
container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use.
Potential Acute Health
Effects
See Section #11: "Toxicological Information" for further human health effects.
Hazardous by the following route of exposure: of skin contact (irritant, permeator), of eye contact (irritant), of ingestion,
of inhalation. Prolonged inhalation exposure can lead to central nervous system (CNS) depression.

Small amounts of liquid aspirated into the respiratory system during ingestion or from vomiting may cause mild to
severe pulmonary injury and possible death.
This product contains methanol.
Acute exposure to methanol, either through ingestion or breathing high airborne concentrations can result in
symptoms appearing between 40 minutes and 72 hours after exposure. Symptoms and signs are usually limited to
CNS, eyes and gastrointestinal tract. Because of the initial CNS’s effects of headache, vertigo, lethargy and
confusion, there may be an impression of ethanol intoxication. Blurred vision, decreased acuity and photophobia are
common complaints. Treatment with ipecac or lavage is indicated in any patient presenting within two hours of
ingestion. A profound metabolic acidosis occurs in severe poisoning and serum bicarbonate levels are a more
accurate measure of severity than serum methanol levels. Treatment protocols are available from most major
hospitals and early collaboration with appropriate hospitals is recommended.
This product contains Toluene, a known central nervous system (CNS) depressant. Handle situation of misuse
accordingly.
Section 4. First aid measures
Eye contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 60 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids.
Check for and remove any contact lenses. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
Skin contact
Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Continue to rinse for at
least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly
before reuse.
Inhalation
Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if
respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the
person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse health effects persist or
are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open
airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Ingestion
Wash out mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at
rest. If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink.
Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so
by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get
medical attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious
person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway.
Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Section 5. Fire fighting measures
Products of combustion
Decomposition products may include the following materials:
carbon oxides
Fire-fighting media and
instructions
Use dry chemical, CO2, water spray (fog) or foam.
Fire Hazards
Vapor may travel a considerable distance to source of ignition and flash back. Liquid will float and may reignite on
surface of water.
Explosion Hazards
Vapours may travel along ground and flashback along vapour trail.
Section 6. Accidental release measures
Small spill and leak
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop up if water-soluble or absorb
with an inert dry material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Use spark-proof tools and explosionproof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach release from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers,
water courses, basements or confined areas. Wash spillages into an effluent treatment plant or proceed as follows.
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous
earth and place in container for disposal according to local regulations (see section 13). Use spark-proof tools and
explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated absorbent material
may pose the same hazard as the spilled product. Note: see section 1 for emergency contact information and section
13 for waste disposal.
Large spill and leak
Section 7. Handling and Storage
Handling
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see section 8). Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited
in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating,
drinking and smoking. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Use
only with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Do not enter storage
areas and confined spaces unless adequately ventilated. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative
made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Store and use away from heat, sparks, open
flame or any other ignition source. Use explosion-proof electrical (ventilating, lighting and material handling)
equipment. Use non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges. To avoid fire or
explosion, dissipate static electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding containers and equipment before
transferring material. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.
Storage
See Section #10 for applicable incompatible materials.
Do not store above the following temperature: 38°C (100.4°F). Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a
segregated and approved area. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and wellventilated area, away from incompatible materials (see section 10) and food and drink. Eliminate all ignition sources.
Separate from oxidizing materials. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have
been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabeled containers.
Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.
Section 8. Exposure controls, personal protection
Engineering controls
Use only with adequate ventilation. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to
keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits. The engineering controls
also need to keep gas, vapor or dust concentrations below any lower explosive limits. Use explosion-proof ventilation
equipment.
Personal protection
Eyes Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk assessment indicates this is
necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts.
Recommended: splash goggles
Body Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being performed and the risks
involved and should be approved by a specialist before handling this product.
Respiratory Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying with an approved standard if a risk assessment
indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards
of the product and the safe working limits of the selected respirator.
Hands Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when
handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.
